Re: Ear defense

I always use ear plugs these days and put my current hearing issues (crowded rooms and loud background noise eg busy pub) in said environment down to my early biking days and the fact that I raced two strokes every weekend without protection.

Re: how reliable 1200gs

I have a 55 plate 1200. Brilliant to ride anywhere. Only issue has been the gear selector indicator or potentiometer. It wouldn’t show neutral. This is a known issue and had my bike been built in Oct 55 it would have had the upgraded bit.This came after riding for about six hours in pouring rain. I ...

Oh wow, when did this happen?
I met him once when I spent a day with him whilst he serviced my bike. His wood and his animals will be missing him.

Re: Free mot-reminder

No MOT is a non endorseable offence.
Duty is on the owner to know the due date.

Re: Elm Trees

Most accidents in tree felling come from similar situations where the under tree springs up. You could tether it before tackling the pinea section at a time.

Re: Elm Trees

A beautiful mature elm has succumbed in the last year close to where I live. Big loss. In the late 70 and 80s I had a business taking down dead and dying elms. They are my favourite tree. Typically they get to about 15 years or so old then succumb.

I got some nice inners off eBay for about £28 last year. They expand and claim to be waterproof. And they fit really well

Hi, just seen this thread. I had a similar problem with my 55 plate 1200gs. I had been for a very long and wet run. Two da6#later after a run in only light wet conditions I pulled up and stopped the engine. Came back ten mins later and it was dead. After a lot of investigation it turns out that bike...

Re: Re: Yorkshire Lunch Club Meetings - 2018 - Final List

Was a good day for it Kieth. Have been out today but by 2pm was well on way home and too hot. 100 miles in the bag to the east coast and back. Family do yesterday otherwise would have been there. Perhaps we need to say if we are coming, so that we are not alone despite a good ride.
